Here’s a pic of how it looks during Attract mode. The top opens up pretty well for viewing. In Attract mode it screams at you then closes so it doesn’t stay open very long. The topper seems well constructed. Looking forward to code integration.

Translite needs to go dark when the topper opens.

I think it should have been Elvira laying flat in the coffin and opening up, rising then turning towards you. Speaking would be a bonus.

Certainly looks better than the original pics.

It'd be a funny troll if under the lid it just had the name of the game again since so many people like to dis toppers that have the game name on it again.

It sometimes seems like Stern are tolling us with these toppers, so would definitely be in character.

Quoted from rotordave:

Nope! Not Stern, anyway.
200 x $999 = $200,000
Just randomly, say they make $500 profit a topper, just to pick a figure. So BOM is $500. (Again, just a random figure, to illustrate the point)
So 200 toppers is $100,000 profit.
If they drop the price to $699, that’s now only $200 profit a topper.
To make the same profit as they would on the 200x $999 topper, they’d need to sell 500 units.
Why would you want to make 500 units when you can only make 200?
And would they sell 500 units at $699? Probably not.
And, the staff resources that would be spent making those extra 300 toppers can be spent making $699 plastic Jurassic Park toppers, etc etc. More money. Companies like to make money.
Stern knows there are 200 people who don’t care that these are $999. That’s why they are $999.

You are talking price elasticity of demand.

Looks better than that one static picture we all saw, but man. I guess it's one of those things that if you can afford it, go for it; like if you have to ask the price you can't afford. However, I bet the aftermarket can utilize those mounts and plugs for something about the same for much less money.

I have to add, I like the STDM videos.
